Think plastic. Think inflatable PVC chairs and TV tables. It must be the 1960s, when radical furniture designs "popped" next to new art, traditional designs were recast with new materials, and the results were often mixed in one room. One of the boldest decades of design in the twentieth century, this a decade of contradictions in styles that only Anne Bony could capture all in one book." Furniture and Interiors of the 1960s" pays homage to the vibrancy and buoyant energy of the decade's design trends and influences in 300 key designs that attract enormous interest and command unprecedented prices today.
For the first time, America was leading a design revolution with Wendell Castle's Molar and Castle chairs, Estelle Lavergne's lucite furniture and the experiments of Ray and Charles Eames. Warren Planter, Hans Knoll, Harry Bertoia, Alexander Girard, and Robert Propst were world-ranked designers who pioneered new directions in furnishings and accessories that appeared in trendy homes and offices in Europe and Asia.
This book is a new and well-timed resource for any 1960s enthusiast who seeks to recreate this innovative, and once again extremely cool look in their own retro home.
